We just love George. The atmosphere is nice and inviting. The food is always great and fun. Even the drinks are fun. They’re always changing it up to do something interesting and tasty. I do wish they’d allow their happy hour to go later than 5:00! A great time .

The weather was nice so we sat outside. I had a half order of the French toast and a side of 2 scrambled eggs - perfect portion size. See photo.

My wife and I loved this restaurant. The ambiance was rustic but classy, and the service was fantastic. Our server’s name was George, and he was very attentive. I was very impressed with the cocktails and the bone marrow appetizer. Both of our entrees were incredible as well: I got the Braised Short Ribs and my wife got the Alfredo Pappardelle. Prices were pretty standard for the area with respect to their level of quality and service. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone in Pensacola looking for a nice place to have some delicious food and/or beverages.

Service was slow. Server had too many tables and couldn’t keep up. Took forever to get drinks. Got desserts and finished before coffee even came.

Service was outstanding. My French toast was cold so they reheated it. Still wasn't hot. I've been there several times and never had a problem until this last time.

Amy, our server, received us graciously, and with utmost professionalism. This was a long over-due date night for my wife and I, so we threw open the glass ceiling on our entrees.

I had the wagyu, which was on special.

It left me verklempt it was so wonderful. Everything was wonderful. Even my Arnold Palmer was the best one in memory.

George Bistro has made Pensacola into the new Gulf Coast Riviera.

George bistro never disappoints. We had the pleasure of having George as our server. He was fabulous. The way he sold the specials made our mouths water. He was also great at small talk, funny and sweet. Will deff ask for him next time. We shared the George fries. Amazing! Love that curry ketchup. For dinner I had the seasonal vegetable plate. Absolutely amazing.

We enjoyed another lovely evening with friends at George Bistro. This restaurant consistently provides great service and delicious food. We sat outside because we had our dogs with us. We appreciate that dogs are welcome at George's. Also, it is quieter outside which is always a plus for me.

Great meal from start to finish. My wife and I shared their fall salad which was amazing. Then for our mains we got the 8oz filet special special that came with 2 sides of your choice. I finished the dinner with one of the best espresso martinis I've ever tasted. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a superb meal for a great value.

No corners cut here. The attention to detail in the food quality and preparation was perfection. Flavors were spot on as well. Rarely get a chance to get out, but when I do, not afraid to go back knowing I will get a top-notch meal - perfect for our anniversary! Thanks!
